"The New Zealander " is a new full colour weekly tabloid available in
Australia for A$2.95.  Like other publications we know of, the Dominion,
and the Evening Post are among the sources of its articles, although it can
presumably print articles verbatim.

(I'll be interested to hear what Australian WYSIWYG readers think - BH)

New Zealand News UK
New Zealand News UK is an Independent Weekly newspaper, covering NZ
news/current events, United Kingdom jobs, NZ jobs, travel, migrating to NZ,
shipping and accommodation/entertainment in London.  There is apparently
also a version called 'Overseas' with lots of info about visa requirements,
etc. for Brits wishing to travel.  Try calling NZ News on 0171 930 6451.

NZ news is available free in London and by subscription elsewhere. It does
contain a fair bit of London specific news, but has some quite good
features on Emigrating and NZ lifestyles for people thinking of making a
move to NZ.  Prices in Pounds Sterling.
